My 95 toyota camry brake light stays on
Ive got a 92 Tercel. Had this same problem. Look around on the floorboard of your car. Look for a small rubber disc, or broken up pieces of the rubber disc.
If you see the pieces or whole hard rubber thing on the floor, then the rubber disc that goes at the point where the brakelight switch touches the back of the brake pedal has fallen off.
When that disc falls off the brakelight switch touches bare metal, and the switch is grounded which makes it stay on all the time.
Climb under the dash with a flashlight and look at the back of the brake pedal. Find the brakelight switch, look at the point where the switch contacts the pedal. See if the rubber disc is missing. If it
is missing find a small piece of rubber to superglue on the spot where the switch makes contact.
If the disc is there the brakelight switch is probably stuck. If its stuck you will see a gap between
the switch contact and the brake pedal. If its stuck get a replacement brakelight switch from an
auto parts store.
